Revolutionizing Myopia Management for Children
Designed with cutting-edge technology and backed by extensive research, MyoLess offers an exciting new approach to treating the "silent pandemic" of childhood myopia.
This lens is not only extremely effective in slowing down the rate of increase in myopia; it also combats ocular elongation thanks to its unique Myo Free-form Technology, which adapts to the nasal and temporal asymmetry of the retina.
In clinical trials carried out with European children, wearers of this new lens had an astonishing 39% lower increase in axial length growth after 12 months, compared to wearers of a single vision lens.
Manufactured with free-form technology, MyoLess is compatible with any standard single vision blank, reducing laboratory costs and lens inventory. It is also aesthetically pleasing, with no visible traces of the treatment showing on the lens surface.
Amid these challenges, the MyoLess emerges as an innovative optical solution from IOT, designed to effectively address childhood myopia. This lens offers a promising way to manage and mitigate myopia's impact, ensuring clearer vision and a clearer future.
Who is MyoLess for?
According to an interview study with 3195 respondents worldwide, practitioners consider that children with a refractive error of -0.50D to -1.00D and a minimum age of 6 years are suitable candidates for myopia management glasses.
Myopia begins to develop during school years and it has been demonstrated that its onset at early ages is a precursor for high myopia in future. Prompt treatment is crucial to limit the chances of its progression. The treatment should start as soon as the first symptoms of myopia appear.
MyoLess - Patient Benefits
Slower progression of childhood myopia: reduces the growth of eye elongation
Perfect vision in the clear area
Enhanced comfort: similar to a regular SV lens
Superior aesthetics: treatment is undetectable on the lens surface, with no visible marks or lines
The MyoLess myopia management lens is built based on hyperopic defocus theory. Standard negative lenses cause light to focus behind the peripheral retinal plane. This can stimulate the eye to elongate further and worsen the myopia over time. By contrast, a lens with positive power at the periphery enables light to focus correctly on the retinal plane.
Myo Free-Form Technology
Myo Free-Form Technology is an advanced innovation that effectively slows down the progression of axial elongation in children’s eyes. It achieves this by incorporating asymmetric positive defocus on the back surface of the lens, which is calibrated to the natural asymmetry of the retina. This ensures that all light is focused on the retinal plane, effectively combating ocular elongation, and slowing down the progression of myopia.
Myo Free-Form Technology includes two zones. In the center is a clear visual zone, 7mm in diameter, with an ovoidal shape that improves vision on the vertical axis.
Surrounding this first zone, there is the myopia treatment zone with asymmetric peripheral defocus, strategically calibrated with +1.8D and +1.5D (temporal and nasal areas) and +2.0D at the bottom of the lens. In conjunction, these carefully calculated zones give children the best possible visual experience while simultaneously treating their myopia progression.
Manufactured by free-form technology using spherical blanks
- Unparalleled versatility, allowing production in any desired material.
- Reduced laboratory costs and lens inventory.
- Remarkably thinner lenses for a slim and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
- A flawlessly smooth and consistent physical surface, comfortable and natural for a child to wear.
Proven Clinical Trial Results
The efficacy of MyoLess has been evaluated in the first randomized, double-blind study carried out specifically in a European population. Children aged 6-12 took part, with treatment continuing for one year.
The study yielded remarkable preliminary results. Ocular elongation, measured by axial length increase, was an astonishing 39% lower after 12 months in wearers of this lens compared to a standard single vision lens.
Analysis shows that wearers of our innovative lens technology experience significantly less ocular elongation compared to those using single vision lenses.
Notably, the satisfaction scores were found to be on par with those achieved using a single vision lens, underscoring the seamless adaptability of children to our innovative lens solution.
Performance at all distances
97% were satified with the performance of MyoLess lenses at distance, intermediate, and near.
95% said MyoLess lenses provided excellent comfort.
100% reported good sharpness while wearing MyoLess lenses.
MyoLess - Features
This myopia management solution effectively combats ocular elongation. With this solution, it is easy to prescribe just one pair of glasses for every child!
Based on the hyperopic defocus principle
MyoLess lens brings images formed behind the retinal plane forward with positive power in the horizontal axis.
Progressive Myopic Defocus
A carefully calibrated region of peripheral defocus which makes the lens much more comfortable to wear and suitable for treating myopia in children of any age.
Ovoidal-shaped viewing zone in the vertical axis
The visual zone has an ovoidal shape in the vertical axis for greater amplitude, resulting in enhanced comfort and increased freedom of eye movement.
Asymmetric Myopic Defocus
Taking into account the asymmetry of the retina, the lens controls blur to prevent the eye from stretching and thus increasing myopia.
7 mm viewing zone in the horizontal axis
The clear vision zone is reduced to 7 mm in the horizontal axis to ensure greater efficiency.
Progressive smooth positive power lens
Our lens gradually and smoothly increases positive power from the center to the periphery.
Decreased ocular elongation
Our lenses reduce the growth of eye elongation in myope children.
Myo Free-form Technology
Free-form technology ensures the ability to manufacture with any desired material, plus availability in a greater number of indexes, eliminating the need for special semi-finished products.
